The bestselling author of The Party and The Drowning Woman returns with a twisted tale of fame, obsession, and the dark recesses of social media..

Camryn Lane is living her dream. After years of struggle and rejection, her first novel has finally been published. Her editor is happy; her teenage daughter is proud; and her boyfriend and friends are all excited for her. She’s on top of the world—until she receives a disturbing message from an unknown sender.
Rattled by the accusations she finds there, Camryn swallows the sick feeling in her stomach and resolves to put the missive out of her mind. But when she checks her ratings on a popular book site, she finds a scathing one-star review. The reviewer is so articulate and convincing that soon, Camryn’s book is flooded with bad reviews. Could the reviewer be the same person who sent the ugly email? And why do they want to ruin her?

As the online harassment creeps into Camryn’s personal life, she vows to find out who’s behind it. Is it really a disgruntled reader? Or could it be someone she knows? The troll’s actions are escalating, and when the abuse turns deadly, it will take everything Camryn has to unmask the enemy so intent on destroying her—and finally learn why she's being targeted. 

  • “Everything Robyn Harding writes turns to gold, and her newest high-octane thriller, The Haters, is no exception. A dark, twisted heart-stopper, Harding has written a cautionary tale about the dangers of engaging with online trolls and its life-altering consequences. Filled with Harding’s signature sleight of hand, The Haters grabbed me at page one and kept me blazing through the pages until the final jaw-dropping page.” 
    Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author of The Overnight Guest and Everyone Is Watching
  • “Time and time again, Robyn Harding has proven herself a talented writer with an innate ability to spin a complex tale. Those skills are on full display with her latest novel, The Haters, which somehow manages to be both terrifying and thoughtful.”
    Chevy Stevens, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Roads
  • “Suspenseful and affecting, The Haters is a page-turning portrayal of an author who thinks she’s about to witness her dreams come true, but gets caught up in an ever-worsening nightmare. Robyn Harding spins a twisty tale that will keep you guessing until its wholly satisfying ending.”
    Clémence Michallon, Bestselling author The Quiet Tenant
  • “A menacing page turner with so many brilliant red herrings. I flew through it and was wrongfooted many times. A clever, cautionary, and twisted tale.”
    John Marrs, Bestselling author of The One
  • “Harding is a master of the psychological thriller. Loaded with relatable characters, topical themes, and hairpin twists—not to mention a highly entertaining story-within-a-story— The Haters is a terrific read and reminiscent of the best of Lisa Jewell!”
    Daniel Kalla, Bestselling author of Fit To Die
  • “A searing, riveting, razor-sharp examination of internet stalking and online bullying.” 
    May Cobb, author of Hunting Wives
  • Praise for The Drowning Woman:

    "As twisty and pacey as it gets, The Drowning Woman is a dark and wild ride of redemption, betrayal, and friendship between two complex women caught in a tangle of secrets—a total page-turner."
    Ashley Audrain, New York Times bestselling author of The Push

    Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of Local Woman Missing
  • "This edge-of-your-seat thriller combines wildly intricate plot twists and turns with complex, carefully developed characters—and reading it made me wonder if there’s anything Robyn Harding can’t pull off! I had no idea where I was headed, but knew I definitely wanted to be on this propulsive, suspenseful, often shocking ride that explores the ways in which we betray ourselves and others—and just how far we’ll go for redemption."
    Marissa Stapley, New York Times bestselling author of Lucky
  • “Every time I thought I knew where this story was going, it swerved in a wholly unexpected direction. A thought-provoking depiction of two seemingly opposite women who learn, in the face of danger, that they are more alike than they could have ever imagined, The Drowning Woman is a masterpiece of misdirection, double meaning, and carefully placed clues. Robyn Harding made me believe that I had found my footing multiple times before pulling the rug straight out from beneath me. Brava.”
    Stacy Willingham, New York Times bestselling author of A Flicker in the Dark
